Set your anatomy knowledge free! The Anatomy Trains weekend intensive will transform your concepts of myofascial anatomy and expand your com- prehension of your clients’ posture and movement. Learn to see the compensatory strain patterns that lead to pain syndromes. The Anatomy Trains concept moves beyond mechanical ’cause and effect’ actions of muscles to the integrative relational connections of real-life functional movement.
This course will help you:
• ‘Bodyread’ your client’s postural and movement patterns with greater accuracy and integration
• Give you access to effective treatment strategies which may occur some distance from the site of pain or limitation
• Enable you to make distinct changes in your clients’ structure in a few short moves.
The ‘Anatomy Trains’ is a revolutionary new way of analyzing soft-tissue patterns, and developing strategies for unwinding these patterns via fascial and myofascial work. The Anatomy Trains scheme offers a language that most hands-on therapists, regardless of their modality, can use to see their clients more clearly, and communicate to colleagues and clients how the neuro-myofascial web is configured by their ‘acture’ (‘posture in action’).
